Shaun Marsh needed to make himself conspic-
uous for the first Investec Test against England in
Against an agreeable Kent, he glided to a hundred
surely enough, but his final tally was only 30 runs
more than Chris Rogers himself, as the two apparent
rivals put on an assured 181 for the first wicket.
Australia s batsmen were barely tested in their tour
opener, by the team presently propping up the bottom
of the Division Two table in the County Champi-
onship, and the conditions themselves were as pleasant
for batting as anything one could find in the British
Isles. Time in the middle was welcome nonetheless,
something Steven Smith and Michael Clarke were
also able to enjoy in a smooth stand before the close
arrived at 348 for 3.
Most interest at the ground centred on how Marsh
and Rogers would fare. On the face of it, Rogers
should be expected to slip straight back into the team
after missing out on the two West Indies Tests due
to concussion. However there are several factors the
selectors may be moved to consider on the contrary.
First of all, Rogers is 37 and not planning to play
on after this series. Secondly Marsh is a younger man
with an attitude and technique that may finally be
maturing after a very long period of cricketing ado-
lescence. Thirdly, the possibility of a dry summer
and pitches similarly easy-paced to this one would
alleviate some of the doubts harboured about Marsh s
ability to combat a swinging, seaming ball.
All this was into the bargain as Marsh and Rogers
set out together, ball seldom beating the bat and reg-
ularly skating to the ropes. Ivan Thomas and Mitchell
Claydon were rarely threatening, though the latter
did tease out the only chance of the morning, a
Rogers edge turfed by Adam Riley at second slip
when the opener had 19.
Rogers exit signalled a change in what had pre-
viously been a fairly sedate tempo, as Smith set off
as though intent upon answering the various charges
against his technique and ability that have emanated
from Graeme Swann, among others. Marsh was hap-
pily taken up in Smith s slipstream, and soon saluted
first-class hundred No. 15, also his second since arriv-
ing in the Caribbean last month.
Australians 348 for 3 (Marsh 114, Rogers 84, Smith
71*, Clarke 56, Hunn 3-78) v Kent
countdown to the Ashes
began in earnest yester-
day, with Australia s
hitting their stride in
the first warm-up
game, and Trevor
Bayliss arriving from
Sydney to officially take
charge of England.
Shaun Marsh staked
his claim for a place in
the first test in Cardiff
starting on July 8 by
scoring 114 on the first
day against Kent, while
his rival for an opening
spot, Chris Rogers,
added 84 in a first-
wicket stand worth 181
Top-ranked test bats-
man Steve Smith (71 not
out) and captain Michael
Clarke (56) helped Aus-
tralia rack 348-3 by
start to the tour by a
team looking to retain
the Ashes after a 5-0
whitewash in 2013-14.
With less than a fort-
night to go before the
Ashes starts, Bayliss is
finally in England---a
month after being hired
as the country s first
Australian coach. He
landed in London and
was met at the airport
by England s new direc-
tor of cricket, Andrew
Bayliss will meet Eng-
land captain Alastair
Cook on Friday before
taking a 14-man squad
on a short training camp
"I ll get to know the
players, No. 1 apart from
that, a little bit of plan-
ning before the Ashes,"
said Bayliss, when asked
before flying to England
what his plans were for
the training camp.
"It ll be some good
fun, I think. I ll be just
doing things the way I
normally do with any of
the cricket teams I ve
been involved in, and
hopefully that means
England playing some
Australia's Chris Rogers
bats during the tour
match against Kent at
The Spitfire Ground,
yesterday. Australia will
play England in the first
Test of the Ashes series
starting July 8. AP HOTO
